    There is also a case to be made that being able to
    trivially alter the author field reduces the ability
    to understand who has really committed a given change
    to the source repository.

I can't understand what social scenario you're worried about.
If you explain it clearly, we could maybe see whether it is
likely enough to be a real concern, and whether omitting this
feature would really help.
